Reducing (conserving) is better than reusing; Reusing is better than recycling; and recycling is better than wasting. If the embodied energy in Fitzgerald's, the 101 year-old former Polish dance hall cannot be conserved, we are going to do everything we can to reuse it, one brick, one board at a time. Stay tuned . . .

Allen Bailey from Camarata Masonry Systems, Ltd. came to the warehouse hoping to drop off electrionics one day. We don't take electronics but Monica and Abevory gave him the right directions (CompuCycle). Mr. Bailey asked: "What do you take?" "Building materials" "Oh, have I got building materials for you." Yesterday he delivered over 15 tons of high quality masonry products that would have gone into a dumpster. This material will go a long way to help not only flood victims rebuild, but many other causes as well. Thank you Allen! Thank you Camarata!
